Isaac Mizrahi on Life and Style

Designer Isaac Mizrahi, the irrepressible New Yorker with his eye-popping color palette and non-stop patter, was the first high-end fashion designer to step into the chain stores and make magic for the masses.

He brought high fashion to Target. He made the runway life public in the 1995 film “Unzipped.” He made Scarlett Johansson mad when he weighed her tatas on the red carpet at the Golden Globes.

Fashion stuff. Mizrahi has an opinion on every fashion question — Sarah Palin, big Oprah, slim Barack. And most of all, everywoman.
